Persons have until Monday, March 21 to submit in writing to the Toll Authority their views on the proposed toll charges.

There has been outcry in sections of the public about the proposed toll rates since the charges were announced on Wednesday.

Since then, the Government has signalled it would seek to review several aspects of the agreement which dictates the manner in which toll rates will be charged on the North-South Highway.

Transport Minister Transport Minister Mike Henry said the government will be meeting with the toll regulators and the administrators of the highway to discuss the matter.
